Commissioned by the Olympic Delivery Authority Arts and Culture Team, the ambition of the residency was to give visibility to what was happening onsite during the construction phase. Neville Gabie was commissioned with a completely open brief and invited to respond to what he encountered. The publication aims to give an insight to the working processes of a resident artist.
